Vietnam and Wounded Knee veteran Tony Bush shows the scars on his chest, left from his participation in Sundance ceremonies. Native American ceremonies, like Sundance and sweat lodge saved his soul and life from deep PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) after his return from Vietnam. During the war Tony was in charge of collecting the dead bodies of American soldiers from the battle fields. The memories from this time are still keeping him awake.
